Need my guitar fixed bad....
    #3830178 - 02/24/05 11:12 PM (12 years, 30 days ago)

Man my guitar has been broken for over a year and it's really getting to me.

I need it fixed up quite a bit, there's hella lot of things wrong with it.

I was just wondering if anybody could give me an estimate on how much it would cost because I can't find a new one with the same oldstyle toggle switches I have. It is an oldschool BC Rich Warlock with this woopass custom Airbrush of this killer dude on it.

Some fucker going outside to smoke opened the door and smacked the input jack, ripped it right out so that needs fixed.

Wiring for the volume dials seems to be quite messed.

I cannot stand Floyd rose bridge, mostly because of the way you have to put strings on. The locks you have to use an allen wrench for are very stripped plus I cannot stand having to cut the ball of strings everytime, and without locknuts it always goes out of tune very easy.

Is all this stuff going to cost me an arm an a leg to get fixed?

Should I just buy a new Warlock and try to find some way to get the old school toggle switches on there? I really don't want to ditch it, I've had it for almost 10 years now it has a lot of sentimental value.

If you want a new tremolo bridge, that work should cost about $200 just for parts.

If you want to go with a fixed bridge, then you're ust looking at a bridge, 10 bucks or so, a jack and a switch, another 10 bucks, and some wiring and labor... i'd get a new set of strings too

all the parts can be found on ebay, or you can use after market stuff

warlocks don't have a lot of value to them, you can get one any day for under $300...

I bet if you look for a while you'll see a broken one come up on ebay for real cheap...

i'd find a guitar you dig and throw on the switches you want. its very easy to add switches, but to add a different bridge would cost more than the guitar, probably. there is alot of wood taken out with a floyd rose.
